A 15-year-old patient with “kissing” lower canines is treated without surgery by extracting the horizontally impacted teeth and using a fixed functional Class II corrector to address the skeletal problem. The case is finished to a skeletal Class I and dental Class III relationship.

This patient illustrates the integration of the Insignia custom self-ligating bracket system with 3D virtual surgical planning and digitally manufactured surgical splints in a “surgery first” approach that can dramatically reduce overall treatment time.
Volume 55 : Number 10 : Page 20211001 : Oct 2021
An asymmetrical Class II subdivision can be treated with a variety of methods. In the case shown here, an adult patient’s malocclusion was corrected using a combination of the Forsus fixed functional appliance and maxillary mini-implant anchorage.
Volume 32 : Number 10 : Page 621 : Oct 1998
The following case was treated in two phases. During Phase I, iatrogenic impactions of the mandibular second molars occurred. Later, Phase II therapy corrected that problem. Phase I Treatment A 9-1/2-...

A Forsus fixed functional appliance is used for anchorage during protraction of the lower molars in a young patient with missing lower second premolars. This approach corrects the Class II, division 1 malocclusion while avoiding overretraction of the lower incisors.
Volume 36 : Number 2 : Page 95 : Feb 2002
Single-lower-incisor extraction cases have rarely been published, perhaps because there are few patients who meet the standards for such treatment. The following diagnostic characteristics are usually...
Volume 55 : Number 8 : Page 485 : Aug 2021
This report shows a Class II, division 1 patient with severe upper anterior protrusion, in whom anchorage from bilateral miniscrews was used to correct both sagittal and vertical discrepancies with one-stage en-masse retraction.
Volume 38 : Number 1 : Page 39 : Jan 2004
Any loss of bony and osteomucous substance in the area of an impacted tooth can impede the ability of the orthodontist to move the tooth into the arch after periodontal surgery. Several regenerative t...

Orthodontic malocclusions involving severe skeletal jaw discrepancies are best managed with a combination of orthodontic and surgical treatment. Historically, the surgery has been performed with fixed...
Volume 56 : Number 4 : Page 229 : Apr 2022
This case shows forced eruption of an impacted lower first molar with dilacerated roots using light elastics anchored by a miniplate in the opposing arch. Fixed appliances were placed to finish the case; 10-year follow-up records confirm the stability of the results.
Volume 48 : Number 12 : Page 775 : Dec 2014
The retromolar area has been recommended for mini-implant placement because of its thick cortical bone and lack of vital structures.1-3 Skeletal anchorage from this region allows teeth to be moved ove...
